i weaned off fent a few months ago...this is what i know:
1. yes...the directions DO say to not clean the area w/ alcohol. this can be dangerous as it might allow too much medicine enter too quickly. cleaning the area w/ soap and water prior to applying the patch should do it.
2. please be sure to not completely cover the patch w/ any kind of tape...only on the edges. covering the whole patch could also make the med release too quickly the 3m tape listed above works.
